Materials & Processing For Piston Polishing
Cast piston is the most commonly used pistons in most of the latest automotive engines. They are known for their high durability and strength feature.
All types of burrs and imperfections in the cast pistons can be easily removed with the help of mass finishing machines from Inovatec machinery. It will help to give a good shine on the piston parts. Thus, the carbon deposit during the combustion process can be reduced. The vibratory tumbler finishing machines can be used to polish cast pistons.
The hypereutectic piston is stronger than the standard cast aluminum ones. So, high performance engine makes use of these pistons. They are used in the engines of racing cars and other high end vehicles.
The hypereutectic pistons demand for a high end polishing. Only then the piston will be able to work efficiently. You can get mirror like finish on such pistons with the help of right media and right mass finishing machine from Inovatec. Both vibratory tumbler machines as well as the centrifugal disc finishing machines can be used for polishing these pistons.
The machining process for cast aluminum pistons will leave lots of burrs on the piston surface. These burrs need to removed completely before taking the pistons to next process which can be the ceramic coating or any other surface enhancement process.
The vibratory tumbler finishing machine or the centrifugal disc finishing machine can be used to polish these parts. You need to ensure that you use the right type of tumbling media to get the desired finish.
The 3d printed pistons are also seen nowadays in the market. They are durable and cost effective.
The major drawback of this manufacturing process is that it will make the surface of the part very rough after manufacturing. So, you need to deburr the parts properly to get a proper finish on the part. The centrifugal disc finishing machine from Inovatec can be used to polish 3d printed piston in the shortest possible time.
The combustion process in an engine takes place at the head of the pistons. So, it is a vital part of the engine. So, the smoothness of the head matters more. It will ensure that the friction is kept to minimum. Thus, there will be less carbon deposit on the head. So, the engine can operate with more efficiency.
Piston heads come in different shapes. You can use any of the piston polishing machines from Inovatec to polish piston heads. It will help you to make the head of the piston smooth and shine with the help of appropriate vibratory tumbling media.
Piston rod is another important part of the piston. It is the connecting rod that connects the crankshaft and the piston head. So, there should not be any imperfections in the rod to ensure smooth operation of the engine.
The piston parts need to polished separately since they are long. You can use the centrifugal disc finishing machines from Inovatec to polish piston rods. These mass finishing machines are capable of polishing different types of parts in shortest time.
Vibratory Tumbling Media
The vibratory tumbling media are the materials that are added along with the piston in the tumbling machine for polishing. Inovatec manufactures wide varieties of tumbling media that can be used for polishing different types of piston parts.
They are available in different shapes, cutting grades, and sizes. The different vibratory tumbling media type include the ceramic media, plastic media, porcelain media, and many others. You can always get in touch with us to select the right type of vibratory tumbling media for your part type.
